Core functionality available in eSuite includes eWallet technology, one-click transactions and the breadth of payments integrations across multiple payment types, payment methods and crucially for Sky Go, payment channels.

eSuite is broadly integrated allowing payments via various payment types such as credit or debit card, supports various payment methods such as direct debit and micropayments and by enabling multiple payment channels such as web, tablet and smartphone means that Sky could feel assured that all current and future payment capabilities and eCommerce functionality is delivered through eSuite.

Project Goals

Enable One-click Payments

By capitalizing on eSuite’s market leading CRM and eCommerce functionality, users can register and store their information and payment details and in turn set up their own eWallet to enable quick, repeat content purchases with just one click.

Offer Pre-Pay Transactions

One of the benefits of the eWallet, means that users can add credit to their account at any time, meaning payments aren’t coming out of the users bank each time they purchase content, but also allows them to set a limit. This works in a similar fashion to using a pay-as-you-go mobile phone tariff.

Monetize Content Across Multiple Platforms

Given the increase in consuming content on multiple devices, eSuite’s integration enables payments to be processed securely on all devices including web, smartphone and tablet, keeping up to date with all the latest technology and latest payment channels.

Efficient Customer Service Technology

eSuite’s Identity & CRM module enables customer service teams to efficiently locate a customer to manage their account details, payments, entitlements, offers, contact history and more, available within one centralized area to deal with a customer’s requests, swiftly.

Conclusion

“This development demonstrates MPP Global’s continuous development and commitment to providing the highest level of service to our clients. We are looking forward to continuing our working relationship with Sky.”
MPP Global, CTO, Chris Cheney

The Client said:

We’ve seen an explosion in on-demand and mobile viewing as more people connect their Sky boxes to broadband and watch TV on laptops and mobile devices with Sky Go.
